This is an abstract of NC Supreme Court case, Benjamin S. Ward and wife Mary A. N. Ward vs. Shade 
Wooten. found in NC Reports, June Term 1876. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ 

Civil Action, for the recovery of the possession of a tract of land, tried before J. SEYMOUR, at Fall 
Term, 1 874, of the Superior Court of Greene County, upon the following statement of facts agreed. 

On June 25th, 1847, Joseph RASBERRY, by deed conveyed the lands in controversy to his son, Joseph 
J. A. RASBERRY. Joseph J. A. RASBERRY died intestate and without issue on the April 10, 1858. That 
the plaintiff, Mary A. N. Ward, was mentioned in said deed, to be heir of said land in the event of Joseph's 
death. 

On November 16, 1849, Joseph RASBERRY, by deed conveyed said land in fee to Alfred MO YE, in 
trust for the payment of his debts. Alfred MOYE, in performance of said deed to him, sold and conveyed 
said lands in fee to Benjamin STREETER and William TURNAGE on December 5, 1854. Benjamin 
STREETER and William TURNAGE went into the immediate possession of said lands after the deed to 
them. Title to said lands in fee has, by successive conveyance, come to Shade WOOTEN. 

That the said Benjamin STREETER and William TURNAGE, and the persons claiming under them, 
including the defendant, have been in the adverse possession of said lands since November 5, 1854. 

That the said Joseph RASBERRY died in July, 1854. That the said Joseph J. A. RASBERRY left as his 
heirs five brothers and five sisters, the plaintiff, Mary A. N. WARD, being one of his sisters. 

That the plaintiff, Mary A. N. WARD, was born December 17th, 1845, and married first one Mr. 
CUMMINS, before she was twenty-one years of age; that her husband, Mr. CUMMINS, died in 1867, and 
she married the plaintiff, Benjamin S. WARD, on November 3, 1870. 

The June 25, 1847deed from Joseph RASBERRY to Joseph J. A. RASBERRY was as follows: 
" This indenture made this the 25th day of June, A. D. 1847: 1, Joseph RASBERRY, of Greene, and 
State of North Carolina, for and in consideration of the natural affection and love which I have unto my 
well beloved son Joseph John Allen RASBERRY, as also for divers other good causes and considerations 
now at this time especially moving, have given, granted and by these presents do give r grant and confirm 
unto said Joseph John Allen RASBERRY, all and singular, two hundred and fifty-seven acres of land, 
bounded as follows: [here follows a description of the land,] except my life estate in the said land, also my 
wife Priscilla's life or widowhood, to the same. It is my desire, if the said Joseph John Allen RASBERRY 
should die without a lawful heir, that my daughter Mary Ann Nancy should be heir of the said land, I, 
Joseph RASBERRY, do freely give to my son Joseph John Allen RASBERRY, his heirs and assigns 
forever. I, the said Joseph RASBERRY, do covenant to and with the said Joseph John Allen RASBERRY 
in warranting and defending the right and the title of the aforesaid tract of land free and clear from the 
lawful claim or claims of any and all persons whatever, unto him, his heirs and assigns forever. In witness 
whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and year above written. 

JOSEPH RASBERRY, [Seal.]" 

The deed of trust from Joseph RASBERRY to Alfred MOYE, dated November 16th, 1849, was an 
ordinary trust for securing certain debts. Upon the above statement of facts agreed, the Judge gave 
judgment that plaintiffs were entitled to recover the whole fract of land. From which judgment the 
defendant appealed. 

If the Court shall be of opinion that the plaintiff, Mary A. N. Ward, is entitled to possession of the whole 
of said lands, judgment shall be given accordingly. If the Court shall be of opinion that she is entitled to 
one undivided tenth, judgment shall be given accordingly, and if the Court shall be of opinion that she is 
not entitled to possession of any part of said lands, judgment shall be given against the plaintiffs for costs. 

The Judge finds error. Judgment reversed and judgment on the case agreed that the defendant go without 
day and recover his costs.

J. N. Bynum Letter on May/Bynum Family, 1906 

This letter from Dr. J. N. Bynum to J. B. Dawson is found Tabitha DeVisconti Papers, 480.19., East 
Carolina Manuscript Collection, J. Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC. 
Dr. Joseph Nicholas Bynum (1832-1909) was the son of Gideon Bynum (1785-1843) and 
Sarah (Sally) May (1794-1841). Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 



Farmville, N. C. April 26, 1906 

"J. B. DAWSON 
Dear Sir: 

I have received a letter from you asking about the BYNUM'S and MAY'S. Well they are now a 
large family with the various connections. It is far enough to go back to Major Benjamin MAY, and you 
have mentioned in your letter as much as I know of him, so far as his war record or public record goes. He 
lies buried in site of Farmville. As you know this part [Eastern] of North Carolina was settled up mostly by 
emigrants from Virginia. When Major MAY came here he had a brother and sister with him. I have no 
knowledge of his brother [John MAY] but his sister married a man by the name of WALSTON and live on 
the land (chartered from Lord's Proprietors] which I now own, and her descendants are in Edgecombe, Pitt, 
Wilson, Greene, Lenoir etc. Major Benjamin MAY married Mary TYSON an ancestor of my present wife. 
I do not know the date of their marriage. But his TYSON wife died about the year 1800, and he died in 
1808 having married twice after the death of his first wife. The second wife was a PETERSON from over 
in Northampton Co., Virginia, and his last wife was a widow and was a BYNUM before she was ever 
married. After he died in 1808 she married a MOORE and he also died and she was always called Aunt 
MOORE by the family. When brother Ben first went to farming she lived with him some years, perhaps 
some 70 years ago. Major Benjamin MAY had no children by any but his first wife Mary TYSON. 

Well now, as to the BYNUM'S— Gideon BYNUM was my father and Benjamin BYNUM was his 
father and Nicolas BYNUM was his father and Hezekiah BYNUM was his father who was said to have 
come from Connecticut down South. I have no certain knowledge though of the BYNUM'S until they also 
like the MAY'S came to North Carolina as emigrants from Virginia. There came two brothers of them 
John and Ben and settled for a short while near Wilson and then moved down in Pitt on the North side of 
the Tar River and from there probably 125 or 130 years ago, over here on Little Contentnea Creek where 
my father was born in 1785 and died in 1843. His wife was Sally MAY a grand daughter of Major 
Benjamin MAY and my mother. So that you see that my father was not born until after the Revolutionary 
War. If my Grand father BYNUM was ever in the war I have no knowledge of it. I have always heard it 
said and there is no reason to doubt it, mat I know of, that my father was in the war of 1812-14^, and was 
stationed down here at Beaton Island near Beaufort. I have tried to find out if that was a fact from records, 
but I have failed in that so far. So that I have no positive proof that any of my ancestors on either side were 
enlisted soldiers. 

Your truly, 

Dr. J. N. BYNUM

Farmville Enterprise, Fri., March 5, 1926. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

The youthful romance of Miss Florence BYNUM, of Wilson, and W. E. BARRETT, of Farmville, fanned 
to life again after many years had passed by by the sending of a Christmas card, reached its culmination on 
Wednesday when the couple, now past middle life, were married in Wilson. Miss BYNUM was for a year 
or so a resident of St. Luke's Home in Raleigh, where she came after the death of her mother, to whom she 
had devoted her life, while romance seemed to slip by her, taking with it her old girlhood sweetheart. A 
Christmas card, sent on a sudden impulse after she had chanced to hear of Mr. BARRETT'S whereabouts, 
about a year ago, found him with the memory of his boyhood sweetheart still strong in his heart. A 
correspondence followed and the marriage was arranged. Miss BYNUM left St. Luke's Home shortly 
before Christmas. Following is the notice of the wedding which appeared in Wednesday's issue of The 
Wilson Times: "A wedding of interest to friends in this city was that of W. E. BARRETT, aged sixty-six, of 
Farmville, and Miss Florence BYNUM, aged 64, which was solemnized this afternoon at 4 o'clock at the 
home of J. J. BEST, on Bragg street, Rev. Tom MATTOX rxaforming the ceremony, which was witnessed 
by only a few friends. Mr. and Mrs. BARRETT will make their home in the city of Farmville."

Capt. J. J. Laughinghouse, Confederate Capt. at Age of 16 

Farmville Enterprise, Aug. 12, 1927 

The youngest captain in the service of the Confederacy and the only at the close of the war, Capt. J. 
J. Laughinghouse, of Greenville, was surely aggrieved last week— he couldn't get to Raleigh for the 
Twentieth Reunion of the North Carolina Division of the United Confederate Veterans. 

Capt. Laughinghouse is now 80 years of age. He is the father of Dr. C. O'H. Laughinghouse, State 
Health Officer, and was formerly superintendent of the State 's Prison. 

"When the 17 year old boys were ordered out in March, '64, 1 lacked six months of being old 
enough to go. I was at Horner's Military School— entered there April 1, 1863,' related Captain 
Laughinghouse at his home in Greenville, while 500 survivors of the Confederacy were enjoying the 
reunion at Raleigh. 

"On April 1 , 1864, President Davis issued a circular letter to all Military Schools in the South saying 
that all the boys well drilled enough for drill masters would be given a first lieutenant's commission and 
assigned to duty" Captain Laughinghouse continued. 

"Cadmus CAP ART, Samuel SILBY and myself were chosen, given letters of introduction to the 
Secretary of War, and sent to Richmond." 

"I was sent to Beasley's Battalion of 700 Junior Reserves. Beasley received me with open arms and 
gave me quarters in his own tent which made me feel very good." 

I went down to hard work drilling those 700 boys, and after about three months of hard work, we 
were organized into a regiment, John H. ANDERSON was Colonel, W. F. BEASLEY, Lt. Col., and 
Nathaniel GREGORY, Major. About the last days of September, the Confederate Government had our 
officers examined and 38 out of 44 were reduced to the ranks. Old army officers who had been shot to 
pieces and were assigned to light duty were substituted for them. The company I was connected with was 
from Pitt County and didn't have an officer." 

"To my great surprise, my regimental officers recommended me for Captain of Co. H, composed of 
boys from Pitt, Wilson and Johnston counties." 

When my commission came, four days before I was 17 years old, there was written on the back of it: 
"This is the youngest Captain's Commission issued during the war and would not be issued except on the 
strong recommendations of his field officers." 

I was in the battle of Bell Field, 45,000 Yankees against 15,000 Confederates. We were then 
attached to Hoke's Division of Johnston's army and were in the battle six miles below Kinston and the 
Battle of Bentonsville, my last fight of the war." 

Capt. LAUGHINGHOUSE, according to General A. W. SMITH, State Commander of the U. C. V., 
is the only Confederate captain now living who held that rank at the surrender.

Warren's Chapel Free Will Baptist Church 

Daily Reflector, Wed., Feb. 27, 1957 

Just a Place to Worship 

Members of little Warren's Chapel Church are looking for help to rebuild their 78 year old home. 

The church was destroyed by an early morning fire on February 17, only a few hours before the 
regular Sunday morning worship services. Firemen were called from Greenville but the building was 
burned down before they got there. 

A committee headed by the son of the church's founder has started a campaign for funds to rebuild 
the church. Major BESS, the committee chairman, says "We were very successful until the fire destroyed 
the church. Today we're asking everybody for help and anything we can get will be appreciated." 

BESS'S father, Luke BESS, Sr., founded the church with several other "Christian workers" on July 4, 
1879, and the senior BESS gave the timber from which lumber to build the church was cut. The church, 
located about eight miles from Greenville on U.S. 264, was one of the oldest Negro Free Will Baptist 
churches in the section and its present membership includes descendants of many of the founders. 

Luke BESS, Jr., is chairman of Warren's Chapel Church's Board of Trustees, and another BESS, 
Leroy BESS, is one of the church deacons. Other deacons are Robert L. CARMON, Frendell CARMON 
and Luby BROWN. Mrs. Pearlie BESS, wife of the fund committee chairman, is the present church 
reporter and Herman C. HART serves as treasurer. 

When the church was founded, Rawson DUPREE, Simon HEMBY, Jacob NOBLE and the senior 
BESS served as its first group of deacons and officers. The Reverend Calvin HARDY was the church's 
first pastor, a post now held by the Reverend E. L. HARDY of Kinston. 

Mrs. Pearlie BESS discovered the fire which destroyed the church. She says that she was awakened 
by an unusual amount of light in her home which was near the church site. She awakened her husband and 
a neighbor who called the fire department, but there was little that could be done to save the old wooden 
building. 

Since the church was destroyed, members have been holding there worship services elsewhere. But 
the temporary arrangements, even though it offers spiritual comfort, isn't like the old days. The members 
felt understandably, that there's nothing like the worship services in a place that had been a part of their 
lives since childhood days. 

There are no plans for an elaborate new building. The members simply want a little place where they 
can worship once more as a group. They have no illusions about the amount of work that will be involved 
in the rebuilding program, saying instead they are willing to do the work if they can get enough help to get 
started. 

Folks with an attitude like that deserve some help.

lineage connection. Must have DEAL/DALE/DAIL surname. Please help us with this project as it could 
open doors to origins of the family.

State of Tennessee Henry County} This day personally appeared before me William S. PATTERSON 
being the same Justice of the Peace before whom the foregoing declaration was sworn to, the said applicant 
Joshua DINKTNS, and by way of amendment to his said declaration, makes oath that he served the first 
tour of six months described in said declaration, all the time as a musician in Capt. CANNON'S company 
as therein before described- The next tour, which was of three months, declarant served as a waggoner- as 
to the statement of the third tour in his original declaration, in which it is said that declarant "was called out 
another tower" of three months, declarant says he was not only "called out", but served one month to the 
best of his recollection as a private- And so this declarant, by way of recapitulation, says he served in the 
War of the Revolution one tour of six months as a musician , one tour of three months as a waggoner and 
another tour of one month as a private soldier- Declarant states that the reason why he did not procure the 
affidavit of a clergyman to his original declaration was that none lived convenient to him or within a 
distance that declarant could procure the attendance of one at his house, and from the bodily infirmity of 
declarant he could not go to a clergyman- Declarant states that the reasons for not procuring the affidavit 
ol a clergyman still contmue to operate more strongly in deed from declarant's increased infirmity-

and one month a private, and for such service I claim a pension

Biography of Zachariah Henry Nance 

Found in "The Nance Memorial: a history of the Nance family in general, but more particularly of Clement 
Nance, of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, and of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, and descendants, containing 
historical and biographical records with family lineage," by George Washington Nance; published in 1904 
by J. E. Burke & Co., Printers, Bloomington, 111. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

OS 

Zachariah Henry Nance -Was born December 17, 1800, in Charles City County, Virginia. His 
mother died on the day of his birth. He was adopted by Stephen and Susannah NANCE SHELL Susannah 
being his father's sister. He was entirely lost to the members of his father's family from his adoption by his 
aunt until Sunday, January 17, 1904, when the author received a letter from J. H. NANTZ Thomasville 
Georgia, enclosing a letter from Mrs. Mary A. NANCE, widow of Washington Jackson NANCE son of 
Zachariah Henry, giving his family record. The author was overjoyed at the finding of this long lost son or 
limb of the family of Zachariah II. For years he had been receiving inquiries concerning his whereabouts 
The finding is the result of a letter written by H. A. BARROWS, Monticello, Florida, bud from branch six 
limb six, Part I., to J. H. NANTZ, Thomasville, Georgia, calling his attention to the forth-coming NANCE 
Memorial. The following items concerning his life are obtained from his living descendants and from the 
records in his family Bible: 

"He never talked of his youthful days, so that is an entire blank to his Limb.family and the world 
No one remembers that he ever mentioned his brothers and sisters, so they do not think he had any 
knowledge that he ever had any. He had the habits and manners of one having been reared in luxury and 
refinement, and his children are not "over common" yet. He was very industrious, well educated for one of 
his day a fine talker, a brilliant man in a quiet way. He was a hatter by trade and followed the same until 
too old for work, when his son, Washington Jackson, took him to his home and cared for him to the close 
of his life He was a Missionary Baptist all his life, as were all his family but one son, James H.. who was a 
member of the Christian church." 

Emeline LATHAM was born September 10, 1810, in Pitt County, North Carolina. They were married 
September 15, 1826, in Halifax County, North Carolina. Their first child was born in Pitt County North 
Carolina, the second in Cheraw, South Carolina, the next two in Pitt County, the next two in Cumberland 
County, and the last four in Wayne County, all of North Carolina. In 1847 they removed to Fayetteville 
Cumberland County, North Carolina, and remained there during life. They are buried there. The father died 
April 4, 1885. The mother passed away January 24, 1892. They were the parents often children those

J. MOORE. They are widows.

Mrs. Ann BOND, at the residence of her son-in-law, John C.WASHINGTON, Esq., Vernon N C Aoril 

^xS^t' W J f S ° Uthey BOND ' Esq -' of Ralei §h- ^. Bond was the third child of Col.' Henry 
CANNON, an officer of the army of the revolution, and was born in Pitt Co., Jan. 19, 1784. It was not until 
the latter period of her life, when she was rapidly fading away, that the author of this sad tribute to her 
memory made her acquaintance. He was quickly impressed with her extraordinary mind and character and 
now feels how impossible it is that any elegance of thought or phrase can do adequate justice to her many 
virtues. She possessed unusual vivacity of fancy and great strength and perspicuity of intellect, was a 
delightful companion, a disinterested and confiding friend. The fertility and originality of her thought the 
fullness of her mformation, and the extent of her observation and experience, rendered her conversation 
highly entertaining and instructive. Ardent in her feelings, generous in her impulses, and devoted in her 
affections, she was a model wife, a fond and indulgent mother, a kind and considerate mistress

SUTTON-GODLEY WEDDING, 1900 

Eastern Reflector, Fri., Jan. 26, 1900 

Not many weeks ago Register of Deeds issued a marriage license for Mr. James W. SUTTON to wed 
Miss Annie GODLEY, both parties living in Chicod township. The groom elect took the license home to 
have ready for the wedding, but somebody who wanted to stop the marriage stole the document from him 
before the day arrived, and the marriage could not take place on schedule time. Not to be outdone in the 
matter, but still not wishing to run the risk of having another license stolen from him, Mr. SUTTON came 
to Greenville today and brought his bride-elect with him; several friends also accompanying them. They 
went to the office of the Register and applied in person for the license. This being procured they called on 
Justice of the Peace H. HARDING to make them man and wife. By this time the number had grown so 
large that none of the offices in the building would accommodate them, so the crowd repaired to the court 
room upstairs where the ceremony was duly performed. There were fully a hundred people present to 
witness the marriage.

Daily Reflector, Tuesday, Oct. 28, 1947 

Nearly one hundred descendants of the late Barry D. NELSON and his wife, Piney Ann Rebecca 
NELSON, attended a family reunion at the old Nelson homeplace in the Stokes community last Sunday. 
The homeplace is still in the family. It is owned by W. Lawrence NELSON, the eldest son, and is occupied 
by Paul NELSON, his eldest son. Rev. D. W. ALEXANDER minister of Bethel, in an interesting address, 
paid tribute to the Nelson family and its fine traditions. A picnic dinner was served. 

Barry D. NELSON died at the age of 80 in 1934, his wife, Piney NELSON, died at the age of 59 in 
191 1. Both were born in the early 1850s. His father's father was the late McGilbert NELSON, who 
emigrated from Scotland and settled in Martin county. Mrs. NELSON'S mother was Hannah ROSS 
OVERTON, who came from England and settled in Pitt county in the late 1700s. 

Barry D. NELSON and his wife reared nine children, five girls and four boys and all nine of them are 
now living, their respective ages ranging from 50 to 70 years. The girls are Mrs. S. H. (Mary) MARTIN of 
Bethel, Mrs. W. C. (Annie) REDDICK of Greenville, Mrs. G. E. (Susie) PAGE of Robersonville, Mrs. J. 
K. (Mattie) BRILEY, who lives between Stokes and Robersonville, and Mrs. C. H. (Mae) BRILEY of 
Robersonville. The boys are W. Lawrence NELSON of Stokes, John S. NELSON of Greenville, Ira E. 
NELSON of Stokes, and Harley A. NELSON of Falkland. 

Thirty-nine of the couple's grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren are living. Eleven grandsons 
served in the armed forces in World War II. One of them, Norman NELSON, a son of W. Lawrence 
NELSON of Stokes, was killed in the Battle of the Bulge. His body arrived in new York Sunday for burial 
in this country. Another grandson, Ira E. NELSON of Stokes, was badly wounded and exposed to mustard 
gas. Two other grandsons, Harley O. NELSON and Hubert A. NELSON, sons of Harley A. NELSON of 
Falkland, were accidently injured in the armed service.

This bible is in the possession of Edna Worthington Tyson of Henderson, NC. It is very hard to read. 
According to Edna Worthington, the Bible was given to Solo Alphonso Jenkins, called "Papa Jenks" 
(Renno's Jenkins Hawkins father) as it came from the Jenkins side and really not a part of his family (Allen

Britain Meeks, Rev. War Pension 

The following are selected items from the Revolutionary War pension records of Britain Meeks found on 
microfilm at the National Archives, Washington, D. C. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

Pension application of Britain MEEKS SI 6478 
State of Georgia Meriwether County 

On this 2nd day of September 1833, personally appeared in open Court before the Inferior Court, now 
sitting, Britain MEEKS a resident of said County & State, aged 69 years & upwards who being first duly 
sworn, according to law, doth on his oath make the following Declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of 
the provision made by the Act of Congress passed June 7th 1832. 

1st That, he was born on the 18th day of November in the year 1763, in Pitt County State of North 
Carolina, has a record of his age in an original entry in an old Bible now in his possession, was raised & 
lived there until brother, after marriage there & after the Revolution removed to Anson County same State 
where he resided upwards of 20 years removed from there in 1816 to Jones County State of Georgia 
where he resided one year removed thence into Baldwin County same State, removed thence to Gwinnett 
County same State in 1820 where he resided until February 183 1 when he removed to this County, his 
present neighbors are John RUSH, Bennett LAWRENCE & Marcus CALDWELL his present residence 
Meriwether County, Georgia. 

1st Service. -- He entered service whilst he resided in Pitt County North Carolina as a volunteer private 
soldier in Infantry of Militia ~ under State authority when a draft was ordered & five out of six of his class 
were required, he was then in his 16th [age written over, could be 17th] year of age, he rendezvoused at 
Greenville the Court House of Pitt County NC his Capt. was Austin SPAIN Lieut, forgotten Major 
forgotten & Col. also his General was CASWELL his Christian name RICHARD he thinks marched 
thence to Kingston on Neuse River Dobbs County, marched thence on to the Town of Cross 
Creek,marched thence to Cheraw Hills South Carolina shortly after the British had been in possession of it 
& injured it, marched thence through the Country by Ramseys Mills where remained but less than 2 days 
& left in the night for Camden SC in concert with the Army under General GATES, near & with him we 
were marching, our Corps were the advance, & in the night met the British advance about halfway 
between Ramsey's Mills & Camden who apparently had the same intent of surprised that we had, he had 
entered this service 5th May 1780 & this battle took place 16th of August 1780, the picket guards had 
some skirmish fighting that night, & in the morning the general battle took place between GATES & the 
British troops, he now was in Camden it was said to be 6 miles, or rather that the battle was about half 
way between yet & Ramsey's Mills which were 12 miles apart, on the attack the militia in a panic & our 
Corps with them retreated, our officers tried to rally & called out several times to "form" but such was the 
confusion, & the spirit of escaping [?] at the time the rush of the British, that there was no general success 
in the rally, & I being young & seeing officers & all flying joined in the retreat also & we were not 
embodied again until reaching Kinston Dobbs County NC where we had been stationed before; -- & 
where we remained not less than 3 weeks, marched thence through the country, State of North Carolina, to 
near Salisbury, on & about Crab Tree Creek, where he was discharged by General Caswell, by written 
discharge, which he has lost "many, many years ago" in the month of November 1780, he cannot 
particularize the day of the month but it was later than the 5th day on which day 6 months service was 
completed. All this time he served as a private, & he thinks his Col. was _ CASWELL also, a son of the 
General, but he is not sure. During the above service, marches & stations, his Corps was generally 
reconnoitering & protecting the Country against the Tories, supporting the inhabitants, & as being 
prepared to retail further inroads of the British, &c, & remained little time at any point. 

2nd Service. - He served 10 days as a volunteer private in Infantry State militia, North Carolina, under a 
call of public emergency, his Capt. was _ MOYE, sometime in the summer of the year 1781, 



PCGQ November 2009 1 



rendezvoused at Greenville Pitt County North Carolina in which County he resided scouted through Pitt & 
Dobbs Counties under an apprehension & report that a party of British would attempt to retake some 
British prisoners which we had in custody, & to observe the state of Country lying between Greenville & 
Kinston. - From this service was discharged at little Contentnea Creek in Pitt County, received no written 
discharge, was discharged by Capt. MO YE -- He cannot recollect the month or day of entrance of this 
service. 

Summary of service 
1st service 6 months 
2nd ditto 10 days 
6 months & 10 days in all 

During these services he was engaged both times with an embodied Corps of Troops & was called into 
service by State authority, that in all said service of 6 months & 10 days he was in the field or in Garrison, 
nor during that time engaged in any civil pursuit. And he further swears & states that by reason of old age 
& consequent loss of memory he cannot swear more positively than he has done as above but to the best 
of his knowledge & recollection he did not serve less than said periods & in the said grades to wit, for 6 
months & 10 days I served as a Private Infantry Volunteered Militia; & for such Service I claim a pension. 
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present & declares that his 
name is not on the pension roll of the Agency of any State ~ and that he knows of no person by whom he 
can prove his services as here set forth & that he has no original documentary evidence to present in proof 
or corroboration of the same, all Revolutionary vouchers which he once had being long since lost or 
destroyed. Sworn to in open Court, & subscribed, now sitting, the day & year aforesaid

Will of Benjamin May, 1808 

This Will of Benjamin May dated 1808, is taken from an old photocopy of the original and a typed 
transcript found in the Pitt County Wills, NC Archives, Raleigh, NC. Though it has witnesses, the Will 
does not have a full date which makes it appear to be a draft. Benjamin May was married several times. 
See the Pitt County Genealogical Quarterly, Feb. 2009, J. N. Bynum Letter on May/Bynum Family, 1906, 
which gives a history of Benjamin May's last wife. Contributed by Roger Kammerer.
